I live in Tasmania and use 2 x Avermedia DVB-T777 and 1 x DVB-T771, all
work well for the tv side of things but the remote only works on the 771
which is a superceeded model (replaced by the 777)
I am interested on how you go with cards, I am looking at a new back end
and are considering dual tuners, maybe PCI Express.

When I first built the system I was using Dapper and there is a few
small mods needed to make at least the 771 work, not sure about the 777's.
